Aburisan Oyamadera Temple雨降山 大山寺
"This temple is located in Oyama, Isehara City. Founded in the year 755 by the Buddhist monk Roben, founder of Todaiji Temple in Nara Prefecture. Its primary object of worship is the Oyamafudozo statue cast by the Buddhiest priest Gangyo Shonin in 1264. A number of sacred places were established around the temple when the Buddhiest monk Kukai served as its chief priest. These sacred grounds are worshiped even today as part of a creed known as Oyama Nanafushigi (the Seven Wonders of Oyama). Visitors to the temple can perform a ritual called ""kawara nage"" in which sundried earthenware are thrown off a cliff to ward off evil and misfortune."

Kanagawa Main Areas
Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
